Right before Vic left (Friday night), we were able to attend a potluck dinner at Casa de Macau, the Macanese cultural club that Vic’s family has been involved in (helped to start 30 years ago). It was the last event for Vic’s dad as President and it was nice to be able to see a number of people we don’t see too often! There were about 90 people there; it was definitely a packed house.
We’ve got a spiritual conference coming up the next two weeks at our church and then I’m going to be ‘retiring’ from the Worship Team in March – seems a little surreal as I connect to God through music but it’s definitely time; it’s getting hard to play the bass with my protruding belly. Having to shift the bass after every song and standing so close to the amp is probably not too great for the baby either J. As much as I will miss it, there’s been a little bit of drama happening within the team and I will be glad to take a step away from that and try to put my focus back on where it really should be – God.
As of this week (and if baby comes on time!), I only have 12 more weeks of work left and I couldn’t be more excited! My last day at work is May 1st and I’m due on the 15th so that should give me two weeks (hopefully) to get settled before baby comes. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by; it seems like just yesterday that we found out we were expecting and now I’m in my 26th week. I went and did a gestational diabetes test a few weeks ago and didn’t hear back from my doctor immediately, which I am assuming is good news. I’ve got an appointment to see my doctor again this Thursday so we will see!
